Where can I see the new Scream 5 film online?

The fifth instalment in the renowned Scream series is one of the most eagerly awaited new horror films of 2022, with fans eager to see Ghostface in action after a 10-year hiatus.

Despite not having a numbered title, the film is a direct sequel to 2011’s Scream 4 (thus the unofficial Scream 5 name) and the first in the franchise not to be directed by Wes Craven, who died in 2015.

Directors, are you ready or not? The new directors are Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett, but horror fans can anticipate much more of the blood, gore, and jump scares that have been iconic with the series.

So, where can fans go to see Scream 5? Is it available to see online or just in theatres? We’ve attempted to address all of your burning questions in the sections below.

Is it true that Scream 5 is exclusively available in theatres?

Scream 5 is now playing exclusively in cinemas throughout the world.

Scream 5, like many other films slated for theatrical distribution in recent years, has been postponed due to continuing Covid-19 limitations. Thankfully, the editing was finished in time for the film’s intended January 14, 2022 release date.

Where can I see the new Scream 5 film online?

Scream 5 is now unavailable to stream. Instead, it’s only available in cinemas.

There’s no official word on whether Scream 5 will be available on streaming services in the near future, but given that it’s released by Paramount, we anticipate it to be available on Paramount Plus in the coming months.

A Quiet Place Part II, which was likewise distributed by Paramount, was available 45 days after its theatrical premiere on the company’s streaming service. If Scream 5 takes a similar path, members to Paramount Plus may expect to see the film in early March 2022.

However, A Quiet Place Part II’s quick release on Paramount Plus coincided with a totally different Covid-19 scenario (when theatres were on the brink of closure yet again). As a result, we can’t be convinced that Paramount will approach Scream 5 the same way.

If you’re a fan of the series, we recommend going to your local cinema to see Scream 5 during its limited theatrical run.

Will Scream 5 ever air on HBO’s Max or Peacock channels?

Scream 5 isn’t coming to HBO Max or Peacock, at least not anytime soon, in our perspective. Because the film is released by Paramount, it will most likely be streamed on Paramount Plus.

Is Scream 5 the last instalment of the franchise?

Despite the fact that no concrete plans for more Scream films have been made public, the box office success of Scream 5 – which became the first film to dethrone Spider-Man: No Way Home from the top spot in the US – appears to be encouraging Paramount to greenlight future instalments in the franchise.

Furthermore, immediately after the film’s theatrical release, the hashtag #Scream6 began trending on Twitter, indicating that fans are anxious to see more of Ghostface in the future.
